Electronics Engineering News from the EE Compendium
Highlights from the world of Electronic Engineering and Embedded Systems Programming, including McHACK, Kinetis KL02, Arduino, 10 Tiny Development Boards, PIC32MX, and more.
The new MAX3172X temperature sensors from Maxim provide temperature sensing over either an SPI or a 3-wire interface. No additional components are required -- these are true temperature-to-digital converters, which is a handy function for certain applications.
Highlights from the world of Electronic Engineering and Embedded Systems Programming, including Android for embedded systems, pcDuino, he world's lowest cost multicore microcontroller, The Secrets to Becoming a Great Programmer, and more.
Highlights from the world of Electronic Engineering and Embedded Systems Programming, including OpenPICUS, Android, mbed, Arduino, and more!
Learn about hardware and software development with the popular Arduino platform.
Microchip has released several new members of the PIC microcontroller family, which are optimized for LED lighting, battery management, digital power supply, motor control and other applications.
The Datasheet Zone at dz863.com is now offering a free online schematic capture tool called DrawSCH. Might be handy for hacking together a quick circuit or documenting a simple hardware design.
Have you considered outsourcing an embedded software project? There are risks to such an approach, but many advantages as well.
Here are a few free electronic hardware development tools that I just became aware of: TinyCAD, FreePCB, and FreeRoute. Great for hobby projects!
I2C is a simple serial communication bus and protocol, and many microcontrollers have built-in hardware support. But how to debug it? An I2C analyzer is one popular choice.
